The book “Captaincis of Studenica and Jošanica in 1833 – List of Haratch heads” by Radomir N. Ristić, published by the Center for Culture “Gradac” from Raška, presents to the scientific and public document that has rarely been used so far – the Census of Haratch Heads for 1833. Along with the transcript of the document, general and local historical circumstances were presented before and during the census, ie the annexation of Studenica and Jošanica to the Principality of Serbia. This is the period in which the Serbian state is being renewed and the Serbian peasant-chief is liberating the Ottoman feudal shackles, gaining ownership over the land he is cultivating and taking initial steps towards civil society. Based on the facts from the list of tributes, relevant sources and literature, several conclusions were drawn about the Studenica Monastery, demographic, social, health and other circumstances in the captaincies. Names and surnames for 5352 males from 1167 families residing in 202 places / villages are given. The book gives an overview of the most important anthropogeographical studies on these areas so far, and points out other key sources which, together with the 1833 Census, form the basis for genealogical research.
